Guantanamo: hunger strike continues, prisoners threatened

Some 103 (the vast majority) of prisoners in US-controlled Guantanamo concentration camp continue on hunger strike in demand of their human rights (what essentially means their immediate release or fair trial). Nothing has changed since Obama made a brief empty speech on the matter last week, rejecting to make use of his presidential super-powers to order the immediate closure of the infamous prison.

If anything for the worse. 36 strikers are being force-fed, while intimidation happens daily in an attempt to curtail access to attorneys (the only lifeline these people have with the World).
